I screwed us over in the financial department again. My mind was completely wrapped up in going to my parents house and forgot that the sprint bill was scheduled to come out. It was paid and we overdrafted by $270. :(
I did babysit and make $100 and sold $60 worth of diapers. Which is good because we had no money for groceries! I still have a few other diapers I am going to try and sell.
So much for doing anything for my birthday or anniversary. That is life though, eating is more important then celebrating my birthday.

My brother is in jail.

I don't know how much I will update here right now. I am feeling a bit depressed about everything going on right now. I have given up my '21 days to break my internet habit' I think I am going to just take a huge break from everything online in general. I have no desire to do anything but lurk.

FAIL.
I was on the computer multiple times today. I was originally going to call today a mild success, because I was only on when Jack was nursing or playing with Jason, but the point of this is NO internet during the day. So fail it is. I am not sure if tomorrow should be day 3 or day 1 though...

Jack and I leave for Maryland on saturday for a week. So I should be able to sail through this coming week without interneting during the day.


I have been thinking a little more about vegetarianism. Would a pescetarian diet be more fitting for me? I like that fish has DHA and that is very good for brain development, and Jack is at the crucial age for brain development. I am thinking that a mainly vegetarian diet with tuna once a week or so would suit me just fine. Tuna also has the benefit of being cheap, and right now anything that is good for you and cheap is a win in my book.

I call SUCCESS!
I was on for 15 minutes this morning because I needed to harvest my crops on facebook. ha. Then I turned the computer off. There were a couple times this afternoon that I felt like I should sit down to the computer, but instead I read Jack one of the books we picked up from the library.

Our day consisted of the playground this morning before it got hot. I love that it is barely a minutes drive away. It is usually empty, but Jack still has a blast. He is getting so brave too! Such a boy.
After an hour there we made our way to the Library. As soon as we pull into the parking lot Jack starts shouting 'library!' We paid our fine, and checked out three books after two hours of playing in the children's library. I even signed Jack up to recieve free books from some program sponsered by Dolly Parten.
After a trip to walmart for fish food, cat litter and post it notes (shaped like hearts!) for operation beautiful we came home. Made lunch, colored, read stories.
The entire day I only thought about getting online maybe two times. Instead I went and did something fun with Jack, and the coolest thing is that except for this morning he didn't even ask to watch TV. This may sound like common sense, but it is amazing how much easier the day is with him when we are actually interacting together. I mean I knew this, but sometimes you just get stuck in a rut.


and I will leave you with some excellent qoutes I came across in the most unlikely place, my Delias catalogue. They go perfectly along with the theme of my journal.

"Be absolutely determined to enjoy what you do" -Gerry Sikorski

21 days to make or break a habit.
Habit I want to break:
Being on the internet constantly.

Habit I want to make:
Using all that time I wasted on the internet, doing something fun with Jack.

Seriously, why am I sitting on the internet while he plays by himself? Okay so I don't sit here all day long, every minute of the day. But I am always hoping on and off and telling Jack "hold on, let me just check this..."
So the plan is to not even turn the computer on until after Jack has gone to bed for the night.
Did I mention that this is due to being bored out of my skull? It is hard not having any friends in real life nearby. I yearn for adult conversation and at the moment the only place I can find that is online. Online is the really the only place I can find people who want to talk about the same things I want to talk about. Diapers, breastfeeding, green living...

I have told myself many many times that I will do this, but now is the time to stop saying and just do it.

This journal is about change afterall, this change will be a good one.

So they say you are your child's first teacher, and rolemodel. I need to be a better one. I need to be more hands on with him. I can not fail him at this most important time in his development.
